More than 400 lawn mowers stolen in Gloucestershire

More than 400 lawn mowers were stolen from an articulated lorry parked in a lay-by on the A417 in Gloucestershire.

Police said the offenders forced their way into the rear of the vehicle and stole 12 pallets of 1,000 watt Gardenline electric lawn mowers.

It happened between 1000 GMT on Wednesday and 0600 GMT on Thursday next to the southbound carriageway, near the Cirencester exit.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the theft to come forward.
